Pacific Rugby Players Welfare rallies for global help for Manu Samoa players

Following the Samoan Rugby Union bankruptcy announcement last week, the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare is rallying to raise £150,000 to support Manu Samoa players.

“Pacific Rugby Players Welfare is an independent not-for-profit organisation that supports professional and semi-professional players of Pacific Island heritage in the UK and Europe – enabling their ongoing success both on and off the field.

“Following the announcement that the Samoan rugby union is now bankrupt, we want to raise funds to ensure some form of payment for players in the Manu Samoa squad.

“Every penny raised by this fundraising activity will go direct to the players and their families.

“£150,000 equates to approximately £1 for every seat at Murrayfield and Twickenham which will be entertained by the squad members in the coming weeks.”

Please support players & families by donating here:…/pacific-rugby-players-welfare is a fully transparent not-for-profit organisation based in the U.K. All proceeds will go directly to the players.
